It's weird because Palmer already had a hattrick at that time. I'd be pissed off just like Jackson too, but still this should be something that is an arrangement made before the game, not during it with shoving and yelling involved :lol:

According to Poch, Palmer is appointed as a penalty taker, so Jackson is not right.

Palmers the pen taker, regardless of score or how many scored it doesn't matter. Ridiculous behaviour from children, 4th time I believe Palmer has had to deal with this remember Sterling doing it twice to him, absolutely farcical.

They want stat padding and goal bonus obviously.

Maybe some risky phrasing given the website I'm on, but Man City are like snakes. Once they grab control of 1st place this late in the season, they tighten up and squeeze the life out of the rest of the league. Arsenal and Liverpool's only chances at winning the title were basically to run the table the rest of the way; now that City have gained 1st place over both, and with a very manageable remaining schedule (away to Spurs is the only difficult-looking game on their schedule, but good luck seeing Spurs getting a result that day), this season is going to peter out the same way last season did. Liverpool play four of their next five games away from home, Arsenal play three of their next four away from home...it's over.

What sort of bullshit calendar is that?!

It wasn't designed that way, one of the away games is a re-scheduled game from a weekend where they played an FA Cup game instead. And for Arsenal I was mistaken because they also have a re-scheduled game in that same time span but that game is at home, so it's three away in the next five, which is entirely normal.

Palmer is going for the golden boot, the other guys are pricks.

Watching Chelsea players upfront (minus Palmer) it is no surprise to me anymore why they are where they are in the league. They play like a bunch of idiots.

Odegaard was amazing against Chelsea. People tend to say City players have immense vision, but he is clearly at least on the same level.

He’s great but it’s more about Chelsea’s poor side, both Badiashile and Diassi look like amateurs, their sides were overflowed causing more space and time for Odegaard. I’m not sure if there’s any clause in contract that Poch has to start some certain players because they’re really really bad.

Thomas Partey was back for Arsenal after being injured for most of the season. His presence in midfield freed Ødegaard more and Rice too benefitted. Of course, Chelsea were also rubbish. Their defence was slow and allowed Arsenal plenty of time, Cucurella running around like a headless chook for one of the Havertz goals. While Jackson was lucky to stay on the pitch after his tackle on Tomiyasu.

Still, two of the passes against Chelsea were out of this world. Pin point.

Liverpool went from Alonso, Amorim and De Zerbi to Arne Slot. Not a bad coach but certainly a gamble.

Won't they try for Amorim again since West Ham fucked it up?

Unlikely. He asked for 10m net and they turned to other options.

Honestly i think Amorim overplayed his card. He hasn't achieved that much to demand such a salary.
